Growing out of the debates regarding the recent Occupy movement and Idle No More, Complex Social Change is an interdisciplinary research program and collaborative partnership developed at the University of Lethbridge - this exhibition at the Doris McCarthy Gallery continues the program and brings it to Ontario. The artists investigate some of the larger issues surrounding complex social change, and the means by which sustained, active engagement can be produced within particular communities, resisting the political and economic pressures that encourage passive acceptance.
